itel is finally coming with a powerful release in Bangladesh and it is the new itel S23. There are two different versions of the gadget priced at ৳10,490 for the 4/128 GB and ৳12,490 for the 8/128 GB model.
itel has been releasing only low-budget phones till now for Bangladeshi consumers. Their sister concern Tecno Mobile is known for releasing higher-priced phones with stronger specifications. We have seen a bit of better releases from itel namely the latest phones from Vision series such as the Vision 5 Plus. But it didn’t catch much attention as the price-specs combination wasn’t that attractive for a brand like itel which has yet to make a name in the slightly higher price category. The design was also very average. So, itel gave a fine comeback with its new S23 phone. So, let’s have a look at that.
The design looks improved, and more unique. The back part looks nice and glossy. The camera setup looks pretty good also. We have USB Type-C and 8.4 mm slimness which are some of its good features. There is a 6.6 inches HD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate. The upgraded refresh rate is a plus feature that is much appreciated.
The back camera has a 50 MP main lens which should deliver better quality than expected for the price. The 8 Mp front camera is nothing extraordinary but it’s still quite okay.
There is a 5000 mAh battery with 10W charging. We have Android 12, a Unisoc T606 chipset which is one of the best chipsets you can find for this cost. There is 4 and 8 GB RAM. Now, the 8 Gb RAM model is crazy. We haven’t seen a phone with 8 GB RAM at such a low price before. But it is too much for a Unisoc T606 chipset. If you have a chipset Like MediaTek Helio G95 or up, then 8 GB fits well for top-level gaming. Here with Unisoc T606, you may have more smooth performance as well as better multitasking. But the graphics quality remains a bit on the lower side as well as the overall power. Still, you can’t complain about having this extra added RAM. We also have 128 GB storage with a dedicated MicroSD slot that looks pretty great.
Among other features, there is a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, FM Radio, Dual SIM and so on.
